I was inspired by Marty from A Stroll Through Life when she wrote about her decanters here. I went downstairs to the storage room and found some bottles sitting on a shelf with other decor items. I was so glad I hadn't gotten rid of them because sometimes I tend to do that.
I put the tall one here in the foyer for now
and searched for ideas for the smaller bottle. I saw these at Michaels the other day
and I found these on Healther Bullard's wonderful blog.
Look at what I found at Michaels! I bought the beads before I saw Heather's photo - I just had to have them. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them and was so excited when I saw her photo and thought about how I could use them!
So here is my little bottle sitting on my bathroom counter.
I adorned it with the above items plus ribbon and a silver link bracelet I had wired a tiny pearl bead onto years ago when I was into making jewelry. Do you see the tiny bead?
You can see the little pearl bead better here. I like how it enhances the larger beads inside the bottle. When school starts back up in August, it will remind me of my summer craft fun while getting ready for work.
There were two sizes of beads in the package and only the small beads would fit into the opening of this bottle. Then I remembered an old clock bottle I have treasured for many years
that I hadn't thrown out and thought the larger beads would look pretty in it.
It sits in the nightstand in the guest room. I've wondered through the years what this bottle contained originally. Does anyone know?
